    The portland head light from what I was told was not the first cache in Maine. I was told the first cache in Maine was at the fort next ot it. It was not actually the headlight that was the cache site. I may be wrong though.

    Default That's correct....

    It is a very fine point, but the cache has never been just about the lighthouse. It has always been on the grounds near the lighthouse. It has not been in any of the fort buildings either.

    But, regardless of where the cache was placed, the lighthouse dominates the area and a little know patch of woods doesn't represent Maine the way a lighthouse does. Wait a minute, of course it does!

    I like option 2 because it represents Maine's flag and the history of this great State!

    I like the coast of maine better than the capitol :-)

    If the State Seal does win you will need to get permission to use it. I believe that the Governor is the official keeper of the permission slips for such quasi-commercial use of the state seal. One more thing. . . you will probably have to move the number someplace else, because there are rules to follow :-(

    I would like to order some either way.

    Default Don't be silly

    The State Seal is public domain. And I'm sure the govenor has better things to do than worry about the likeness of the seal going on a geocoin.

    Sorry, Brad, but It looks like Zoltarus is right:

    But perhaps we could get some publicity out of this... Get the Governor's permission and then a photo/press op with you presenting him with a Maine Geocoin?

    I stand humbley corrected. I should have know that the State would make it difficult to do any that appeared easy.
